Guarded Systems, a company that designs, deploys and manages enterprise-class networks worldwide, has been selected as a partner to the National Purchasing Network (NPN), a hotel purchasing consortium that provides guidance on hotel food and beverage, rooms, technology and maintenance procurement.

Though this network, hotels looking for broadband and high speed Internet can reap the benefits of group buying power through this consortium.
Guarded Systems has been providing high-end technology and communications solutions since mid 1990's. The company successfully designs, deploys and manages enterprise-class networks throughout the United States and overseas. Today, Guarded Systems supports more than 25,000 end users, and more than 250 next-generation enterprise solutions in use around the clock. NPN leverages its more than $25 million in purchasing power to offer its members money-saving access to products and services from industry leaders.
The alliance shows NPN's commitment to providing travelers with the most robust, secure broadband options possible. Guarded Systems builds wired and wireless infrastructures that support a myriad of applications, from reliable, ultra-high-speed Internet for guests, to digital signage, VoIP, point-of-sale and video applications. In addition to offering better billing and control of a hotel's HSIA network, Guarded Systems' network solutions promote corporate identify and brand management through customization, provide an intuitive interface easy to use by non-technical staff, and enable guests to roam between wired and wireless networks and (optionally) prevents guestroom users from gaining free access to meeting room, boardroom or other area WiFi.
“We are absolutely thrilled to become an official member of the National Purchasing Network and serve as a resource for hotels looking for the most secure, affordable and flexible broadband solution on the hospitality market," said Adnan Syed, Guarded Systems president. "Guarded Systems XcessPro MSC is the only full-service broadband solution that provides an Internet gateway, firewall, WAN load-balancing and traffic shaping from a single source. Plus, it's hosted in the cloud, and comes equipped with a built-in property-management system interface and 24/7/365 in-room support. While the complete design saves thousands of dollars in expense, it more importantly delivers the functions of four separate devices on one integrated platform. This is key to keeping costs low for hoteliers and satisfaction scores and Internet-usage rates high among guests."
Guarded Systems is widely known as a value-added reseller of the NOMADIX access gateway, in addition to developing its Guarded Systems XcessPro On Demand Access Management software. While the NOMADIX appliance is still available through Guarded Systems with the purchase of support services, going forward the company will be focused on selling XcessPro MSC as its proprietary solution.
